I am testing some new gear, a GigaPan set to use for automated, very detailed panorama shots. I have done a few test over Christmas and it works really well and delivers impressive results. Even though the apparatus looks complicated the setup is straight forward. However the thing drains it batteries very quickly and because it is so cold at the moment I can only about do ten panoramas with one load of AA batteries.
It is a lot of fun and the detail of the images are great, the downside really is that one image is just too big and all the raw data eats up so much space on the hard drive.
